I was out this mo'nin, feelin' blue
I said-a, 'Good-lookin' girl can I make love with you? '
Hey-hey-hey, babe
I've got blood in my eyes for you
Hey-hey-hey, babe
I've got blood in my eyes for you-ooo
I've got blood in my eyes for you, baby
I don't care what in this world you do

I went back home, put on my tie
Gon' get that girl that 'is money will buy
A-hey-hey, babe
I've got blood in my eyes for you
Hey-hey-hey, babe
I've got blood in my eyes for you-ooo
I've got blood in my eyes for you, baby
I don't care what in the world you do

She looked at me, begin to smile
Hey-hey babe, 'Can't you wait a little while?
No, no babe
I've got blood in my eyes for you
No, no babe
I've got blood in my eyes for you-ooo
I've got blood in my eyes for you, baby
I don't care what in this world you do

'Oh, I've got blood in my eyes for you'

(guitar & fiddle)

No, no ma'am, I can't wait
You got my money, tryin' to break this date
Hey-hey-hey, babe
I've got blood in my eyes for you
Hey-hey-hey, babe
I've got blood in my eyes for you-ooo
I've got blood in my eyes for you, baby
I don't care what in the world you do

I'm gonna tell you somethin'
Gon' tell you the fact
If you don't want me, give my money back
Hey-hey-hey, babe
I've got blood in my eyes for you
Hey-hey-hey, babe
I've got blood in my eyes for you-ooo
I've got blood in my eyes for you, baby
I don't care what in this world you do

It ain't no need a-gettin' roustin' yo jaws
Ya ain't gonna get none of my Santa Claus
Hey-hey-hey, babe
I've got blood in my eyes for you
Hey-hey-hey, babe
I've got blood in my eyes for you-ooo
I've got blood in my eyes for you, baby
I don't care what in this world you do.
